Arizona puts INF Bloomquist on DL, promotes Wilson

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have put utility infielder Willie Bloomquist on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

The move was announced Monday and is retroactive to last Friday. Bloomquist, hitting .306 in 14 games with Arizona, sat out the weekend series in New York when the Diamondbacks were swept in
three games by the Mets.

Arizona selected the contract of 30-year-old infielder Josh Wilson from Triple-A Reno. He was batting .351 with a home run and 12 RBIs in 16 games with the Aces. It's his second stint with Arizona.

He played 11 games with the Diamondbacks in 2009.
